I heard from an inside source that Notch is secretly planning an attack on all the players of Minecraft! When 1.5 comes out, as soon as you load your world, there will be a huge "explosion" that kills all players and NPC's currently on the map. It's not so much an explosion as it doesn't destroy any terrain, but it acts similar to an explosion. You might be wondering why this is so bad, because dying isn't really an issue as you just respawn, but here's the catch: once the explosion kills you, your world is COMPLETELY destroyed!! So we HAVE to keep ourselves alive. There is only one way! I said it acts similarly to a normal explosion. This is not exactly true. It is MUCH MUCH stronger. The explosion starts from the top of the map and travels downward. So we must make our bunkers at the bottom of the map, or else the wave will reach you. It, of course must me made of obsidian, as the waves travel through all blocks except obsidian. Bedrock would be better if you're okay with hacking it in. If you use obsidian, maybe make it 2 thick? Make sure that there is a chute to get down to there MADE OF BEDROCK OR OBSIDIAN. The chute must start at the surface (so that the wave gets slowed as much as possible, hopefully not reaching you through the opening) and head straight down to your bunker. (Note that this chute should be the only opening). The chute must be 1x1 and must contain ladders every OTHER space (this is VERY important, because if they were every space, the wave vibrations could travel through the ladders and reach you). Now, hopefully you have your bunker made. But we are not done. You have to clear your inventory before heading down, because the less you have, the less "mark" you make, so your pull is less strong with an empty inventory, so the wave is less likely to reach you. Notch designed it to attack players, but he found it easier just to be attracted to inventory items, so you MUST have an empty inventory. This is why you need an open chute. If it was closed off with obsidian, you wouldn't be able to get out without a diamond pick! So when 1.5 gets released, before you update, go into your bunker and THEN update. Wait about 3 minutes just to be safe, and then you may leave the bunker, and your save file should be safe. *Note you couldn't just backup your save, because the explosion is activated as soon as you load your world for the first time from 1.5. And remember to make this bunker on ALL of your saves and even in SMP as it will affect EVERY save! Good luck, and let's hope these bunkers work.

No you didn't, because TNT damage doesn't stack.
